Motorway accident claims

It is often said that motorway driving is safer than driving on any other roads and this is true in the sense that number of injuries per travelled mile on motorways is less than other roads. However the high speeds involved an the risk of multi-vehicle pile ups means that individual accidents on motorways are likely to be more serious than accidents in built up areas.

There are many causes of motorway accidents such as drivers falling asleep, drivers failing to reduce speed to take into account weather conditions - particularly fog, impatience, careless lane changing etc.

A common cause is vehicles travelling too close to the vehicle in front. In the case of a multi-vehicle pile up even a driver maintaining a safe distance may be shunted into the vehicle in front by a vehicle behind which has not kept a safe stopping distance. This situation can complicate matters when it comes to making a claim for compensation.

Because of the speeds involved on motorway accidents can involve serious injuries and considerable damage to vehicles involved. The liability issues in accidents involving several vehicles can be complex and any personal injury claim will require the services of a specialist solicitor.
